The Gold Coast is in the middle of the whale-watching season. Australia's whale-watching season generally lasts from late May until October.
Thousands of humpback whales travel the Gold Coast's Humpback Highway annually as part of their annual migration to warmer seas up north. They set out on a 5000-kilometre journey, leaving the freezing waters of the Antarctic to travel north along Australia's east coast to the warmer waters of Queensland, where they will mate, give birth to their young, and then travel back.
The migration of humpback whales, one of the world's longest animal migrations, may be witnessed on the Gold Coast. It would be best if you caught this stunning sight. There are a lot of lookout points where you may see this view. Boarding a whale-watching vessel is the best if you want a close-up look at the animals.
